I recently rented it from Rogers up here in Canada. Like Lake Mungo, it juxtaposes interviews with found footage, and uses the interesting tactic of showing the interview subjects the footage as they're being interviewed, in order, so they can comment on/react to it. Obviously, some of them have never seen it before, which is neat.

That said, the story itself is not as interesting as it might be, and contains one of those recent tropes I hope I never see again: The riff-on-Heather's-hubris thing of "this is all [insert female name here]'s fault, because ambitious women will overreach and lie to get what they want".

Noroi, OTOH, really is amazing. It's hella-creepy, and while it is Japanese, it's also far more Lovecraftian than it might immediately appear--like both Rings, in that way, except even more so. You can watch the entire thing on YouTube, in chunks.
